My new "****" rims. Ambrosio "Excellence" in red anodise. These will replace the worn Mavic "Open 4CD" rims on my bike. I wanted something all Italian that's different than the scores of "Open Pros", "Ksyriums", or "Velocitys" thats out there. These will be laced to my "Record" hubs, and will give my bike a certain "****" factor. :D LOL

.........what do you guys think??

Excellent choice... But I just lost a little exclusivity, and that's a real bummer. At least it means you're a copy-cat!

Nice. Another rim to look at (I don't know if it is available in colours) is the Excelight SSC. The Nemesis is the tubie version of Excellence, very popular at PR.

Hey, beautiful rims. Where did you get them from? Also, how are you planning to lace them up? I am looking to build a new set of wheels with Record hubs and am looking for suggestions. Post a pic when there all built up. Thanks...

Hi, got the rims from "Cycles Ghisallo" www.ridecampy.com.
Planning on building them 3x with DT 14/15 with brass nipples. Once they're all built up with my 8-speed 'Record' hubs I'll post a full report with pics.
